Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria (Broadview)

Broadview, IL 60155

Meet us where the pizza is served Chicago-style


In every passionate discussion about the best deep-dish pizza in Chicago, this pizzeria makes the list.


Lou Malnati’s served its first heaping slice of cheesy pizza on March 17, 1971, when Lou and Jean Malnati opened their first pizzeria in Lincolnwood. Despite opening an Italian restaurant in a Jewish neighborhood on St. Patrick’s Day, people lined up around the blog for a slice.


After Lou passed away in 1978, his sons, Marc and Rick, joined their mother in the family business. Together, they honored Lou’s legacy by continuing the tradition of scratch-made pizza using hand-selected vine-ripened tomatoes from California and a secret family recipe for the famed buttery crust.


Today, you can find Lou Malnati’s Pizzerias across Illinois, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Indiana, including two locations that we love in Oak Park and Broadview.
